Medicine (Med-P)


If you are passionate about science and medicine, and dream of becoming a doctor, then you are a perfect candidate for the McGill Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences one-year Med-P Program. This one-year preparatory program designed exclusively for CEGEP students, prepares you to excel in McGill’s doctor of medicine and master of surgey MDCM medical program and go on to become a compassionate caregiver!

The purpose of the Med-P Program is to prepare students for careers as key members of the medical community, whether in clinical practice, in medical education, in research or as leaders of the health care system. The primary educational objective is to broaden and enrich the education of students to ensure they are prepared for the rigorous four-year undergraduate medical education program (MDCM Program). To achieve this objective, students must complete two consecutive semesters of a Bachelor of Science-style curriculum; all students are required to complete required courses and electives.

The Med-P Program is now offered in Montreal (in English) and in Gatineau (in French). The program in Gatineau is a partnership between McGill and l'Université du Québec en Outaouais. The McGill program is identical at both locations.
